About schwas’s Garage
About me and my passion for cars
Hmmm...started with my first friction car I guess...a tin something I'm sure. Had a great '59 Caddy convertible friction car. Slot cars were big in my teens and I still have them (somewhere around here).
I would sit mesmerized at my 8th grade desk as transport trucks loaded with the new cars for 1965 would roll by the school’s windows. We had a Ford dealership across the street from the playground and every boy was plastered against the chain link fence to see the unveiling of the 64-1/2 Mustang...no one was disappointed, except that none of us could actually buy one. But that's what dreams are made of!
So anyway, it pretty much continues that way today when I spot something old or something new if it's noteworthy and not ordinary.
I read AutoWeek cover-to-cover, usually skipping over the SUV coverage though, each week.
Oh, and I am in the process of restoring my late brother's 2nd car...a 1959 Mercedes-Benz 190SL (silver w/ red leather).
